Average Rating:Audio: 7.5

   (Audio - 7.5)

Recorded from the 7th row on Alex's side using an Archos Jukebox MP3 Recorder set on the highest quality settings (which uses VBR averaging about 170kbps) as two large master file set (Set1 & Set2 which included the encore) using a Sony ECM-MS907 stereo electret condenser mic.? The master files were then split into individual tracks using Sound Forge 5.0, and encoded to shn using the MKW tools.? There is some minor glitches in the first few tracks due to a couple of security ducks and equipment checks, but for the most part a solid recording.

The fans that were close to the recorder were very well behaved.? Some of the highlights to this evenings show are when Alex messes up the beginning of Freewill (I think he was expecting a different tune), but recovers quickly and then delivers an EXCELLENT version of one of his BEST solos (IMHO).? During Driven, Geddy added a lil bit to the bass solo.. just a skosh.? La Villa, of course, where Alex is being wacky on the guitar,? joking about songs for a new album songs, and about how his doctor told him he had Alzheimer's which promptly gave him amnesia.?

Ok, ok, I know, I know, it was recorded directly to mp3 but give this recording a chance as it sounds superb considering the source... you will not be disappointed I promise!

The bonus tracks were an afterthought actually.? As I was creating the artwork I was thinking to myself that it would be nice to provide all the songs being played this tour (Between Sun & Moon, Vital Signs and Ceiling Unlimited being on the A-set-list and The Trees, Freewill and Ghost Rider being the differences in the B-set-list.)

I have always enjoyed it when a bootleg contained alternate tracks from another show presenting the whole live song selection for that particular tour, so I figured it would be even cooler to add them from the previous time Rush had visited Chicago using the excellent boot "A Huge Giant Marshmallow" as a source.

Then just to make a full CD listening experience, I added Take Off & The first single (always a favorite in my book).?? I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it and a special thanks to Daneck who helped me hammer out some of the details :)? Artwork is still in the making, and this recording will be forwarded to the DRE in hopes of releasing a Platinum Edition soon.? Remember, this recording is not for sale.? For free trade only!!.    (2003-01-18)


Disc 2 Requires Overburning!!? If you don't have a CD Burner that supports Overburning and are interested in hearing the un-remastered version, please get Sonic Trail v2.0. Sonic Trail - Chrome Edition is the remastered version.    (2003-01-18)
